Scully Faculty Homes
Construction has been completed for nine of ten new faculty non-dormitory housing units, thanks to the generosity of Marlynn and Bill Scully '57. (Click the photo above to view a slideshow of the construction.)
One large multi-family residence building known as "Faculty Row" and two single family homes have replaced the old maintenance garages and the area known as the Barracks, located on the north side of campus beyond Johnson Hall.
The final unit, a free-standing home, will be completed by the summer of 2013. The Barracks, originally built in 1944 for the Army as temporary housing when the school closed, were finally demolished in June 2012.
The faculty homes were designed by Kaeyer, Garment & Davidson Architects, PC, of Mount Kisco, NY, also responsible for the design of our dining center, Scully Hall, completed in September 2009.
Two free standing units were completed in the fall of 2011. Seven more units will be completed by summer 2012. Plans have been devised which consist of 10 housing units as follows:
• Two 800 square-foot studio apartments
• Three 1,200 square-foot loft apartments
• Two 2,400 square-foot attached single family homes
• Three 2,600 square-foot free standing single family homes
The homes are of brick veneer to match the rest of campus and include upscale interior and exterior detail and geothermal heating and cooling. Other key project goals:
• Consider the new faculty residences as part of an overall strategy to help attract new faculty and retain current faculty.
• Improve the site use of the northeast quadrant of the Campus in a manner consistent with the Long Range Plan and Campus Master Plan.
• Provide a central "Green" within the faculty housing for common use.
• Develop buildings consistent in look with iconic Campus buildings such as Cluett Hall, The Arts Center, and Barstow Dormitory.
• Utilize traditional materials, details, and vernacular in a contemporary manner to create space that naturally fits in to the Campus context and is up-to-date.
• Employ sustainable building practices to the fullest extent possible.
• Minimize the overall site disturbance and protect as many existing trees as possible.
Faculty Housing was identified as a priority by Trinity-Pawling's Long Range Planning Committee, who proposed their ten-year plan to the Board of Trustees in January 2010.
